    Remember that period where Lopez wasnt playing and Opeth had to make do with whatever drummer they could? (Hoglan in this case)
    Was anyone on the forum, at any of those shows?
    and if you were do tell what you thought.
    All out of curiosity.

    Thanks for the dates and video.
    Ill have to watch that a bit later.
    Work comp atm :(.

    I didnt realise he did so many shows with Opeth.

    I really couldnt see Gene as the permanent drummer though.
    It'd be a bit weird, Axe just suits too much.

    But was anyone at one of the actual gigs?

    Hey it's not super tight but so what it is very damn good. Gene Hoglan has always been an amazing drummer with Dark Angel and Death. I heard he used to wear ankle weights while drumming. I don't know if that is true.

    I was at Jul 22: LA Sports Arena Lot in LA and Gene did a fine job. That's the date they filmed the TGC video FYI (and you'll see Gene in said video). Gene is a good dude, and a great friend of the band. Strapping was great as well... and clutch also.

    Or the fact that Opeth is a Swedish band and prefer to record their records in Sweden. It's cool that he filled in for Lopez but i'm glad Axe joined instead.

    gonna have to call you, once again, deaf and retarded. have you even listened to any of hoglan's work?

    because albums like - time does not heal, individual thought patterns, symbolic, city, demonic, physicist etc etc all prove you wrong. there's a reason why hoglan is one of the most respected drummers in metal.
